Greg Tankersley Home – Old Cloverdale


Kev and I had the pleasure of visiting a really fantastic house in the Old Cloverdale neighborhood of Montgomery (Alabama) recently, and I thought I’d share the photos we took of it here on our blog today. Old Cloverdale is just down the interstate from us (about 15 miles) and the houses there are all […]

Guest My Nest: Dutton-Waller Cottage- Tybee Island, Georgia


This Summer, we whistled n’ worked on a little ol’ place called “The Mess Hall” on Tybee Island, Georgia.

However, about […]

Guest My Nest: Mess Hall- Tybee Island, Georgia

House Tour – Union Springs, AL

Earlier this month, we took a trip to Union Springs, Alabama. It’s a small, laid-back town located about an hour and a half southeast of where we live. Century-old Victorian homes line many of the streets around town, and the ones that are for sale are priced incredibly low because of the towns proximity to […]

Maple Street Marvel

About two miles from our Lettered Cottage, sits a bona-fide Southern Charmer… It’s listed for sale for $199,900. Dreamers to the cores of our beings, Kevin and I love to visit places like these to draw inspiration from their charming architectural details and symphonies of colorful landscaping. Imprinting images like these into your subconscious mind […]
